ATL airport: rental car center => international terminal

I will be driving rental car into ATL Airport (International terminal) with 2 check-in bags and 1 carry-on.

1) Drive to international terminal, park the car, check-in the bags, drive to rental car center to return the car. Take skytrain & shuttle back to terminal.

2) Drive directly to Rental car center, return car, haul check-in bags via skytrain & shuttle to terminal for check-in.

Which is a better option? Thanks.

What rental car company. I use Hertz and when I drive the car in, they hop in and drive me to my terminal, either N or S domestic or Intl and let me out right at the door.

At some locations, Hertz charges extra for this service.

What airline? You can check in for DL international flights at the domestic side of the terminal. Also, depending on the time of day, there might not be PreCheck at the international terminal.
